Philips HeartStart OnSite AED | Review
OnSite AED has dominated the market since its launch. The first commercial
defibrillator available without a prescription, the Philips HeartStart
OnSite AED is one of the smartest choice for anyone looking to increase their
preparedness in their home or office while keeping costs down.
Philips OnSite AED has numerous features that set it apart
from competing models. The design and construction of the Philips OnSite are nearly perfect. Both incredibly small in size and
light in weight, the Philips OnSite AED weighs only 3.3 pounds. When a
rescue scenario forces you to travel distances to your victim, this
feature of the OnSite you'll both appreciate and praise.
Philips OnSite can also determine if a heart rhythm is
shockable. If a shock is indicated, the Philips OnSite will
direct you to press the Shock button, which conveniently flashes orange.
The Philips OnSite will then deliver a low-energy dose of biphasic therapy,
the preferred therapy of rescue personnel that is both gentle to the
heart and highly-effective. If a shock is not needed and CPR is the
recommended therapy, the Philips OnSite will instruct you
via voice prompts and instructions.
The Philips OnSite
is also one of the easiest - if not the easiest - defibrillators to
administer therapy with. As we all expect, the HeartStart OnSite
features voice prompts, providing clear voice instructions to the
responder that guides users through each and every step of
defibrillation and CPR. Simply pull the OnSite's
green handle to activate the AED and the Philips OnSite AED will
guide you from start to finish. For an untrained layperson forced to
respond to a situation of sudden cardiac arrest, this simple feature of
the Philips OnSite AED could very well be the difference
between life and death.

the patient's bare skin, adjusting its voice prompts and commands
Philips Onsite can also be used on patients of any age.
The OnSite AED is able to sense when the infant/child SMART
Pads Cartridge is installed and automatically adjusts the energy level
for infants and children, while also providing unique CPR coaching for
children and infants. You can also prepare for those stressful
situations by installing the
training pads cartridge. The OnSite AED will suspend
all shock therapy while the training pads cartridge is installed, in
addition to walking you through various patient care scenarios.
The HeartStart OnSite also features Philips' patented Quick
Shock. Taking note of findings from the American Heart Association
Guidelines, which reported "reduction in the interval from compression
to shock delivery by even a few seconds can increase the probability of
shock success," Philips developed their Quick Shock technology that
places the Philips HeartStart OnSite AED as the fastest defibrillator in its
class for delivering a shock after CPR. Seconds may not sound like much,
but we guarantee that in a potential life or death situation, every
passing second will be experienced and a matter of seconds may very well

battery warranty, clear and easily understood voice prompts, and more,
all for less than $800. If you're in the market for an affordable
defibrillator that can be used by just about everyone, the refurbished Philips
HeartStart OnSite AED is a wise choice.
